Lukr at Rockwood Music Hall

From the event description:

Born in an ambulance on the streets of a nowhere town and raised on a Christmas tree farm, artist Lukr started writing songs as a kid plunking out melodies on the $80, secondhand family piano. His post-genre sound currently reflects the '90s, Ms. Lauren Hill, Dashboard Confessional and old Kanye. It could be called cinematic slo-mo emo hip-hop. He calls it "neon grunge."

When: Friday, Sept. 13, 6–9 p.m.
Where: Rockwood Music Hall, 196 Allen St.
Admission: Free
